Discover RHS Garden Bridgewater

RHS Garden Bridgewater will open its gates on Tuesday 18 May 2021 after the coronavirus pandemic delayed opening plans by almost a year.

The 154-acre garden in Salford is located just under 6 miles from TraffordCity and easily accessible via the Bridgewater Way canalside path. It's the biggest hands-on horticultural project undertaken in Europe since planning permission was granted in 2017. Visitors will be able to access world-class horticultural inspiration and expertise at the first-ever RHS Garden to be located in an urban area.

The garden was created in partnership with the Peel Group and Salford City Council and is the result of years of hard work by a dream team of designers, gardeners, contractors and many, many others.
